Brasher/Bogue is Kentucky Native Andy Brasher and North-western Iowa boy Dustin Bogue.
Both moved to Nashville in 2005. After meeting through a mutual friend in Music City, the two started writing songs. Andy brings to the collaboration a love for soul music and southern rock and Dustin brings a raw country edge.
Their first album, The Brasher/Bogue Project (released in 2009), was initially meant to be a vehicle for getting their songs to publishers. The fan bases of both Brasher and Bogue joined forces behind the duo and new fans were gravitating toward the music on this CD. The demand to perform live was there. Putting the band together was the next step.
Now joined by John Adkisson on the bass guitar, Chris Sogard on the drums Harry Smith as producer/lead guitar and Jim Heep on pedal steel guitar, Brasher/Bogue hit the road.
In the summer of 2010 Brasher/Bogue landed an event series at the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville. "Brasher/Bogue & Real Friends" grew to become the #1 event series for Music City’s HRC. Brasher/Bogue continues to perform bi-monthly at the HRC in Nashville and feature friends such as Daryle Singletary, Highway 101 (including a guest appearance by Wynonna Judd!), Kelly Pickler, Rivers Rutherford, Bobby Pinson, Ricochet, Veronica Ballestrini, Ashley Gearing, Kingbilly, Jeremy McComb, SixWire and Shawn Mayer to name a few.
This event series gave birth to the "Party Bus" ...a 60 seat chartered bus that hauls Brasher/Bogue fans to and from the event. Aside from whisking fans to the “Brasher/Bogue & Real Friends” shows in Nashville, Tennessee, the "Party Bus" has also been used in Northwest Iowa and as far south as Florida.
Another unique way of bringing the Brasher/Bogue party to the fans and "Real Friends"(named after their popular cult song, "Real Friends") is by way of the "Friends Cam.” With a live feed from the soundboard and a wireless camera, Brasher/Bogue broadcasts shows and interacts with fans all over the country!
The band has played tons of bars and festivals, most notoriously (and tropically) the Flora-Bama; Sloppy Joe's in Key West; Kenny Chesney's Winter Beach Jam in Nassau, Bahamas and the Key West Songwriter's Fest.
In 2011, Brasher/Bogue was selected to be the official band of Kenny Chesney's “Going Coastal” Tour pre show parties. The events took Brasher/Bogue through Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, Detroit, Chicago, Green Bay, Washington DC, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
In June of 2012, the newest Brasher/Bogue studio album was released. Called By God (Part One), the newest project is a 5 song EP, the first half of a two disc installment. The single from By God (Part One), "Drivin with the Devil," is getting lots of airplay on mid-level markets from California through the midwest into the Ohio Valley and South into Florida. It has been the most requested song for 5 weeks on WBKR 92.5 in Owensboro, KY. #1 on the high 5 at 5 countdown for 30+ days and counting!
Andy and Dustin were commissioned to write "Drivin' with the Devil" by Native-Intelligence Distributions to be the theme for the audio book version of Driving With The Devil: Southern Moonshine, Detroit Wheels, and the Birth of NASCAR by Neal Thompson. Racing historians and legends alike are raving about the song’s vivid interpretation of the early days of stock car and moonshine. By God (Part Two) is due out on December 12, 2012.
